It’s been a month and a lot of things have happened in the world of U2 but luckily Adam Scott Aukerman are back to dig into the physical release of U2′s thirteenth studio album Songs of Innocence. They’ll talk about U2: The Definitive Biography, the online backlash of the free digital release of the record & Bono’s recent apology, and the bonus tracks on the physical release of the album. Plus, they catch up on the recent live shows they’ve seen which include Tom Petty & Neutral Milk Hotel and wonder if U2 will ever have a Top 40 hit as they go through listener mail!

I'm so ridiculously happy this is out and I can't even begin to explain it to anyone I know. Feels like Christmas morning when these eps drop.

I've only gotten through the first 25-30 minutes, but this might already be my favorite episode of UTU2TM

Five minutes in and already there's some major Engineer Cody Cody bashing going on. Amazing.

I literally (and I'm using the word properly) jumped out of bed to put my putes on and download this on iTunes when I saw it on Soundcloud this morning.

The funny thing about Scott and Scott talking about the reaction to the albums release and the reviews of it is that they really are one of the few people who reviewed the album for its music, and not the method of release or a dislike of U2 anyway. They gave the album a fair review and so many 'real' reviewers didn't and didn't want to either.

The logical next step for the podcast is for Scott and Scott to write their own definitive U2 biography, right?

Holy jesus fucking christ, this was so unexpected and turned my day around.

I was laughing so hard while they let the Kellog's ad play out.

Jesus. With the Earwolf podcast dump today (plus yesterday's JJH and DLM) I think I have my weekend planned out (not that I'm complaining).

haha I enjoyed Scott A's slight mention of Karmin. I couldn't honestly tell if he does truly like them or if he was just being nice as like a "I like (some of their music kind of)", but that damn woman annoyed the hell out of me! If they dont have more pop hits (cross our fingers), this will be an amazingly funny reference in about a decade like a reference to say Snow, Ace of Bass, or Cece Peniston

Thanks for shutting that listening sesh down quick, A Scott

Engineer Cody Cody is too busy Astral Projecting to unlock the studio.

My Karmin story: I went to a wedding years ago where the band was fronted by the singer of Karmin. She was pretty great. But they were doing covers of course. They even brought me on stage to sing an Earth Wind & Fire song they were doing. After the wedding the singer told me that she had gotten a ton of views on Youtube for her other band.

Had a similar reaction to Adam's when I actually heard the music, but hey, you go girl.

I feel that more podcast audio engineers should be fleeced on air.

Wait, were there NO sub-podcasts in this episode? Maybe they didn't feel like Cody was capable of hitting the drops.

That aside, another great one. This has become the one podcast where (rather than waiting until my ride home) I'll fire it up at work and basically just sit and listen and mostly ignore work for however long it takes. Totally worth it.

Scott: What if on the back of the book it just had a blurb that was "'Peep' - A Chicken."
Scott: That'd be great, Scott. I mean, I don't know what you want me to say.

Never stop this podcast, bros. NEVER.

ETA: Oh hell yes. We finally get a "My Wife" at 1:01:02!

That too made me extremely happy. I'm only at 56 minutes in, but I hope they have a lengthy discussion about original artwork and the brilliant Scott/Scott covers you guys made.

When Scott and Scott went off on Engineer Cody Cody at the end for yawning I lost it. Let's be Frank, this is a great day for everyone.
